Supporting Our Community
The Mountain Housing Council of Tahoe Truckee (MHC) is a project of the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation and brings together 27 diverse partners to accelerate solutions to achievable local housing.
The MHC’s goal is to build on the needs identified in the 2016 Truckee North Tahoe Regional Workforce Housing Needs Assessment and tackle the unique and pressing challenges of housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region, including availability, variety, and affordability.
In the North Tahoe-Truckee region, there is a need for housing at every income level, from homeless to middle-income salary earners.
The Mountain Housing Council’s goal is to help more people understand that there is a gap between affordable housing programs and available housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region. People who fall into this gap make too much to qualify for affordable housing developments but too little to buy or rent market-rate homes.
Our Housing Policies
Achievable Local Housing is a framework developed by the Mountain Housing Council (MHC) in 2017 to define the range of unmet housing needs in the region.
Development Impact Fees are payments imposed on all new residential and commercial construction by local governments and specials districts.
The State and Federal Policy Platform lays a framework for how the Mountain Housing Council (MHC) will direct its advocacy efforts for state and federal policies that impact achievable local housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region.
MHC developed the Short Term Rentals White Paper to help decision makers and the community better understand how short-term units (rented for fewer than 30 days through online platforms such as Airbnb and VRBO) impact housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region.
MHC has conducted a study on Accessory Dwelling Units, or ADUs. The recently issued ADU White Paper highlights MHC’s research and how ADUs can be another tool to increase housing inventory throughout the region.
